Soma at the time had a Neotek Series II with 32 or so channels, MCI tape machine and whatever the latest and greatest ProTools rig was (John McEntire loves the PT).  Sometime around these sessions and the Tortoise 'Standards' tour John bought the A Range which replaced the Neotek after a few years (!) of work by Shea Ako.  Schoeps mics are a favorite at the studio - often into Hardy pres back then or certainly the A Range these days (incredible sound).   I think the QTVR photos on the Soma wbesite date from around this period.


I could be wrong but wasn't the console in studio "a" a trident 80b at this point?

Soma really only has one studio the other is an edit room, and the two consoles were the Neotek followed by the Trident A Range (quite the upgrade!).  Engine Studios about 6 blocks away has a Trident 80 series.  

Neoteks are pretty prevalent in Chicago - I even had ones in my tiny home studio.
